Naljeogigeul is an alternative script for Korean created by Bae Jun
in summer 1994 when he was a high school student. It's a syllabic system
based on Hangul, and the shapes of the letters are particially influenced
by Hangul, Hebrew, Cyrillic and other various scripts. The initial idea was
to construct an easily memorable secret code for writing Korean. Later Bae Jun
developed an alphabetic version of Naljeogigeul
to make it easier to write other languages.
- Direction of writing: left to right in horizontal lines
- Used to write: Korean, and other languages
- Naljeogigeul means "diary script" in Korean. Bae Jun has used this
script to write his diary since 1997.
